What Do You Do?

What do you do when you have plenty of yarn left even after knitting your daughter a scarf, and an ear warmer? Well, I test knit Opulent Armwarmers .
I find I don't knit fast enough to be a good test knitter but I certainly enjoyed these. The cables are beautiful, they aren't difficult as long as you don't try to knit them during an exciting basketball game or shoot um up type of movie. I think I messed up the cable on one of them during a particularly exciting ball game. Of course I didn't realize it until I had finished that armwarmer so the cable is going to stay that way. Since the mistake is high up on the arm my daughter's coat will cover my mistake. I took creative license when photographing them and put the mistake on the bottom. They are blocking at the moment. What do you do to properly block something like this? I gave them a nice gentle bath and then stuffed them with plastic bags. I will take more pictures when I have a hand model available.

What do you do when the grand kids visit and it is almost 80 degrees outside? Well, we play in the leaves, ride our bikes and dig in the dirt. We have LOTS of trees around us so there are always plenty of leaves collecting around the house and the girls love playing in them. Grandpa is sitting on the studio steps playing with a new camera. These two either ham it up or ignore the camera completely.

What do you do when there is a lovely Sunday ahead of you with no obligations other than church? I plan to photograph some knitting in progress, take a long walk, work on my to do list and knit. Have a wonderful Sunday and let me know what you are doing.

I played with my grandson too. But not outside. Although the sun was shining it was still too cold and neither of us felt great, coughs etc. So we played on the WII and just hung out together. Oh and I knitted and crocheted a little too.

Beautiful weather, after church, hmmmmmm - sounds like a put on my favorite pullover, stretchy jeans, comfy socks and cook, read, play with the corgis, sit on my husband's lap, and hang out with my best girl and watch What NOT to Wear!!!
Aaahhhhh Sundays - aren't they great!
